To encourage spiritual sharing between all ages of our community, Bridge City Friends Meeting will be organizing five Intergenerational worship Sundays during this next school year. We will be using this format for the 2nd Sunday of every other month.
The Intergenerational Sundays will take place during meeting for worship and will follow this basic format.
Meeting for Worship will begin as usual at 10:00am with about 15 minutes of singing. At the end of the singing someone will introduce the Intergenerational Sunday. We will settle into silent worship for about 30 minutes. Then we will transition into worship sharing for about 30 minutes.
The children and young people will remain in meeting instead of attending a separate first day school lesson during this time. The younger ones are invited to be in the center of the circle during the worship sharing, working on a quiet craft with adult volunteers.
The worship sharing will follow a theme and may include bringing an object to share (see announcements for specific Sundays). Adults and children are invited to speak in turn, as they feel led. The meeting will close as usual with the holding of hands, introductions and announcements.
